Kamsin Kaneko

I’m a teacher, traveler, writer, amateur photographer, mum and lover of cheese, chocolate and wine. During the pandemic I added coach the list.

I work with activists, educators and creative business owners to write memoir and nonfiction books that stretch the boundaries of what it means to be human.

I grew up in Hampshire, on the edge of the New Forest and a mile from the sea. I went to university in Leicester and have lived in Reading and Canterbury. I’ve also lived in China, Bosnia, Indonesia and Singapore. But most of my adult life has been in Japan (15+ years total). I currently live in Tokyo with my husband and our biracial, bilingual and singularly adorable son.

Other Qualifications:
  • Certified Author Accelerator Nonfiction Book Coach
  • N2 Japanese Language Proficiency Test
  • MA Applied Linguistics and TESOL
  • BA English

What clients say about

coaching with them

Thank you, so much for your guidance, for listening, for pointing me in the right direction. I will explore, play, write and let myself express whatever needs to be expressed.

I’m Astonished By Kamsin’s Ability To Get The Writer In Me To Find My Own Way. She Didn’t Critique My Work, But Posed Poignant Questions That Allowed Me To Find The Answers.
